Lucien Le Moine
The 2011 Echezeaux Grand Cru has a stony, undergrowth-tinged bouquet that only gradually opens in the glass ? broody and introspective after the 2010. The palate is medium-bodied with that stoniness coming though on the tip of the tongue. But there is some lovely, very classy, mineral-rich red fruit defining the Romanee St-Vivant textured finish. This is a sensual wine that should age beautifully in bottle.
